It is the fourth consecutive build that does not test new functions. If you still want to have a look at the changelog, you can do it as usual in the Windows Blog .

If required, it automatically adapts to a color theme. Edge also makes it easier to switch between open tabs using the "ALT + TAB" key combination.

Microsoft has released a new pre-release version of Windows 10 in the Dev Channel after switching to the new release channels in the Windows Insider Program. The Build 20161 brings a revised start menu. Other innovations are available for the Edge browser and notifications in Windows 10, among others.

In addition, the tiles have a partially transparent background, which is supposed to convey a more uniform look overall. Another new feature is that the color of the transparent tile background can be automatically adapted to the current Windows color theme or the color of the background.

Windows 10: Fast Ring changes channel - DNS over HTTPS for insiders in the test

It brings a functional innovation and a "track change". If the Fast Ring Builds previously came from the RS_PRERELEASE channel, they now come from the "MN_RELEASE" channel.

In addition, the Browser Edge will support the key combination "ALT + TAB" for a quick change between the currently open tabs. While the buttons are pressed, previews of the available tabs are also shown in the well-known multitasking view.

The so-called toast notification now shows a logo of the app in the upper left corner, so that users can more quickly identify the origin of the notification. In addition, a cross is now permanently displayed in the top right corner to close the notification.

Another change affects 2-in-1 devices. When you disconnect the keyboard, they no longer display the dialog with which users can decide whether they want to switch to classic tablet mode or the new desktop interface introduced with the May 2020 update. The new interface is now preset. In the settings, this option can be changed at any time under System, Tablet.

No Windows 10 May update for two Surface devices - and problems out of nowhere

 No Windows 10 May update for two Surface devices - and problems out of nowhere © provided by Dr. Windows Windows 10 May Update Last Wednesday, Microsoft released the Windows 10 May 2020 update. It was an overall quiet release, basically business as usual, as they like to say. And yet we have to talk. They would not be accompanied by Microsoft's old chronic illness: problems that were possibly unavoidable and that would not be bad at all: the inability to communicate properly.

Microsoft also provides the general public with the new function of the calculator for displaying mathematical functions and curves. It is aimed primarily at pupils and students.

According to an entry in the Windows Experience Blog , Build 20161 also fixes numerous bugs. Among other things, the logout process has been optimized and a problem with Xbox controllers has been eliminated. Restoring a PC should also work again and not always fail with an error message. In addition, Windows also shows the battery level of connected Bluetooth devices again and the dialog for setting up a new printer should no longer crash.

Crashes where a hypervisor error is reported have not yet been fixed. The installation of new builds may also take an unusually long time. However, it can also happen that the task manager incorrectly reports a CPU speed of 0 GHz.

users who have subscribed to the Dev Channel will automatically receive the new build. It is unclear when the innovations will be introduced in Windows 10, since the Dev Channel is no longer linked to an upcoming function update.
